Imagine… you grew up in your country’s largest slum, desperately poor, unable to go to school more than just a few terms.
Imagine… you’re a teen girl with a single mother, living with 6 siblings in one room.
Imagine… your country has a complete lockdown and there is no… nothing. There is especially NO HOPE.
Now imagine that you’ve gone through free vocational training to learn a skill that can allow you to get a job or start a small business. The 2021 lockdown delayed your graduation by 6 months…
BUT THE DAY IS FINALLY HERE!
IT WAS AMAZING!
The current Skills for Life tailoring class made the caps and tassels. (The gowns were a last-minute borrow!) The hairdressing class did everyone’s hair so they looked gorgeous. Families and friends came, speakers encouraged and praised them, they danced and ate and had cake — and couldn’t get those grins off of their faces.
Your ongoing support and graduation-specific donations made this day possible!
